Domaine of Madame Elisabeth, Versailles

(80+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Louis XVI bought Domaine of Madame Elisabeth for his younger sister, Elizabeth, in 1783, as a place where she and others could take a break from life at court. But that ended in 1789 with the French Revolution. Renovated several times over the years, the site now consists of a rectangular main building with two floors flanked by two pavilions. Of the original house, only three rooms in the apartment of Madame Elizabeth remain intact--ironically, rooms she never used because she slept every night at the castle. On the grounds, you will find an orangery as well as some magnificent gardens.

  • The park and house are very lovely & complete a day of visits in Versailles. I highly recommend this place. You can easily imagine the lives of ladies back in Louis XVI & Marie-Antoinette's days ! The domain is located on the avenue in front of the Palace; you can walk there (about 10/15 min) or take the 171 bus in front of the Palace and it's the 3 bus stop (about 3/5 min). One piece of advice: visit the website in order to know the opening days .
  • Perfect for chilling
  • It is a scandal to have a park maintained by the taxpayer money and not power, Tan without a shirt or make a peak picnic and half grass is prohibited... If the population cannot enjoy freedom parks sold the and it will make money in the coffers. C is beautiful d be nice but be useful it is more important... a meditation...

  • Great place to walk around with the family. Quiet and clean. We can even go see the two pools at the bottom of the park for the little ones.

  • A nice garden with many footpaths where one has the impression of being alone in the countryside.
